COCKTAIL RECIPE: Praline Old Fashioned
2 oz pecan-infused rum
0.25 oz demerara syrup
3 dashes angostura bitters
2 dashes orange bitters
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir, strain into a rocks glass over ice. No garnish. Easy-peasy.
SIDE DISH RECIPE: This is from Chef Jason’s Mama.
My fondest memory of Thanksgiving is still my Mom’s sweet potato casserole. My brother and I would always fight over marshmallows or pecans…so my Mom would do both and it stuck for me! The chef in me always likes putting a modern spin on the classics such as twice baked sweet potato casserole. Of course, we can’t play favorites so we use marshmallow and rum soaked pecans. I like to keep things interesting with using smoked cinnamon in the filling and finishing with a drizzle of buttermilk crème fraîche.
